Answer: Carrots, spinach and broccoli all are cool season crops that should be planted about 2 weeks before your last frost date. Last frost in southern New Jersey should be around May 1st. Plant in full sun in raised beds (beds piled up about 10" high and 3'wide). Raised beds drain water and heat up better in spring. Spinach can be grown in part sun, but won't grow as fast or as full. Keep the plantings moist, but not overly wet, especially before they germinate. Too much cool water in spring can cause seeds to rot. .
